No matter which bars are near your house, it's bound to be karaoke some night of the week. While each person has their own top karaoke songs, this karaoke playlist is a collection of the most awesome, singable, crowd-pleasing karaoke songs that are widely regarded to be the best. If you're looking for something new, you might enjoy the best 2018 songs to sing at karaoke.

What makes good karaoke songs so great? Does everyone in the bar knows the lyrics? It's probably a good karaoke song. What makes for the best karaoke songs? Is everyone in the bar standing up and singing along? You've done it!

The best karaoke songs aren't necessarily the most amazing songs ever recorded. Sometimes easy karaoke songs are what gets people excited, because anyone can sing them.

Which songs for karaoke are your go-tos and absolute favorites? Is it the story of a small town girl, living in a lonely world? Is it the one about your friends in low places? Or is it about how you don't practice Santeria?

Vote up the songs below that are good for singing at your next karaoke night. Don't see your top karaoke song to sing for all your friends? Add it below so others can try it out. Then head out for a good night of karaoke, even if the weatherman says Lightning Crashes.
